NZ Media Again
The spiraling insanity around the resignation of New Zealand’s prime minister has reached epic levels of exaggeration and misinformation.
It’s important to realise how damaged New Zealand’s media industry currently is and that this situation does represent an embarrassing circumstance for many people in the industry.
When Ardern herself made a statement regarding her resignation NZ media outlets preferred claims from other sources that suggested her resignation was in the face of unbearable misogyny.
These claims suit the personal agenda of many reporters and associated public figures who have dogmatically pursued this victim status on behalf of Jacinda Ardern and it has to be said to the point where they make no rational sense at all.
Adherence to the feminist agenda taking preference to any other possibilities for Ardern’s resignation leaves the public totally uninformed as to what our political situation is – it may take a few days for the emotional claptrap to die away and for any degree of sensible reporting to return.
The floor is currently littered with refrains of emotional views and while lacking foundation have a determination to be the prevailing point of view.
What The actual situation is that isn’t being reported doesn’t have any relevance to MENZ that I can put my finger on, so I will leave that aside
The comparisons, suggesting that Ardern has been treated worse than any male politician, lack credibility but certainly not creativity.
Ardern had more than her fair chance potentially facing the prospect of resignation as far back as March 2020.
What this sorry saga does ignore is that Ardern has eaten her way through generous public support to significant public discontent. In that respect she is the engineer of her on apparent misfortune.
I say apparent as you really don’t have to give a toss at what you’re walking away from it you are promised a position on the international stage.
Even Ardern acknowledged the effort that made her tenure possible. That’s the significant difference in that she is a manufactured politician and not a self made success.
There is an embarrassing lack of honesty and integrity in what’s being reported and that hasn’t done a lot for women in general when it’s obvious that the electorate both male and female alike was past tolerating Ardern.
There is a determination to blame all those nasty bad men for what she has done to herself.
While this country is still a democracy, that doesn’t wash.
